There’s a fine line between getting a shot of the perfect storm, and getting very wet while taking photos – luckily, I just about managed to stay on the right side of it for this shot!
Mono Lake, in California, is a favourite place of mine to photograph at any time of year. The unearthly “Tufa” that project up from the water’s edge add an ethereal feel to the entire scene, and it was these I’d intended to shoot.
On arrival, however, the weather seemed to have other plans. A huge storm was heading down from the Sierra Nevada mountain range in a way that seemed to be a warning to photographers to stay away. Nonetheless, I trekked down to the water’s edge and set up. With a long exposure, I figured the cloud formation would add something to the rocks in the scene below. Little did I realise, as the storm evolved, that the star of the show would no longer be the Tufa themselves – that storm wanted to steal the shot, in literal terms, with a sky fall…
